    This will make you cringe ...

    Hi folks, I've signed up to ask for some advice. I know you'll wince as I'm a try-hard DIYer who's been trying very hard over the last couple of days (and a lot more "couple of days" here and there), since moving into our first home last year. We're in a first-floor maisonette that was leaking...

    Is this a BAD TILING JOB?

    We are currently getting our whole house refurbished. The standard of the work as been very high so far however when it's come to the finish and attention to detail of the tiling in the Main and EnSuite bathroom, well, I think, even having never ever tiled before, after watching a handful of...

    Is this a silly question?

    I'm probably asking a really silly question but here's my problem. I've tiled a few rooms before and the way I start is to screw a piece of wood into the wall low down where the second row of tiles will start I make sure this is level with a spirit level so I have a straight and level...

    Can I tile onto this type of plywood?

    Hi, My friend's Dad built some boxing around the toilet in my bathroom using some plywood salvaged from a building site. I think it was previously used for boarding up windows (shuttering ply?). See pics attached. Can I tile onto this if properly primed or am I better off redoing the box in a...

    Is this substrate ok?

    It's been a few years since I have visited. I have to replace 2 tiles previously fitted to marmox that got damaged. When I pulled them up most of the concrete face has come off the marmox board so I'm not sure what is best. Hopefully this picture is clear to see.

    Is this acceptable ?

    After tiling my en suite to a good standard ( with help from you guys) I decided to get a pro in to do my bathroom because of the expensive tiles being used. I've noticed some cuts are badly chipped. Do you think these are acceptable and will be less noticeable when grouted ? Thanks

    Is this an acceptable finish?

    Good evening, we have just had our bathroom replaced by a local company who advertise that they specialise in bathroom and kitchen replacements. The general standard of the work has been good except for two issues. The first is the quality of the cutting of the tiles and the second is a...

    Any fix for this limestone?

    Builder on the job I'm on has blobbed these limestone on two window cills, not sure what adhesive was used but he was using grey rapidest on a bathroom so presume it would be that.. They were fitted six months ago and never been sealed, they have no tiles left so any ideas to sort besides...

    Is this a dodgy job?

    Hi all, I'm wondering if a tiler should be expected to know how to remove a stainless steel splashback. The guy who tried to remove one for me put a big chip in the ceramic hob and dug a couple of holes in the wall then gave up. When I turned up I saw straight away it was too thick just to be...
